🤿Have you not started scuba diving yet? Or maybe you are looking for reasons to dive again after not diving for a while. Here are the top 5 reasons to start scuba diving:
👉🏻1. Escape from daily life. Scuba diving gives us a feeling of freedom, which goes together with a sense of exploration and adventure, something we definitely need in our busy lifes!
👉🏻2. Connection. Diving connects generations of love for the ocean. Many have been able to create memories with family members and friends, and speaking out of experience it definitely is amazing to share underwater experiences with loved ones.
👉🏻3. Our brain. Research shows that just by viewing images of nature, parts of our brain that manage empathy and regulate emotions are activated. The ocean connects us to each other but also to ourselves and our emotions!
👉🏻4. Trips. Diving can be done all over the world, which means you will never get bored on a vacation or trip! Instead of only exploring land and culture, by certifying as Open Water Diver you will be able to explore underwater as well.
👉🏻5. Exercise. Yes, you can have exercise and have fun! Did you know you can burn between 400 and 700 calories per dive, which is more than jogging for an hour! Exercise also releases endorphins, which are our happy hormones.
